Alpha Phi Alpha Announces the 9th Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Multicultural and Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is celebrated as a man of peace and justice.

Baker, who worked tirelessly to bridge people of difference in the Pine Belt Area, ultimately establishing the Martin Luther King Ecumenical Prayer Breakfast in Hattiesburg. The two men mirrored each other in purpose, passion and pride for equality for all races, not just for those who shared the same color. Both men were heroes and truly believed in the brotherhood of all mankind.

The purpose of this prayer breakfast is to commemorate Dr. King's Dream and those heroes, past and present who tirelessly work towards pursuit of that dream through reflection and fellowship. Through the support of local businesses, individuals, non-profits, and churches the Prayer Breakfast will be free and open to the public.
